My girlfriend and I brought our kids on the tour - we all had such an amazing time!! We swam with a ton of dolphins and the entire tour was top notch. The boat captain, guide, and boat ride were awesome!! I would highly recommend this tour to everyone!!

You know how as parents you long for those experiences for your kids where you can just see pure joy and happiness on their face, like a trip to Disneyland or finding out that they're going to have a new sibling? Well that is what going on an excursion with these amazing humans is like. Yesterday was the best day our family has ever had together. We saw 100's of dolphins and huge sea turtles, the weather was perfect, the boat was so safe and clean, and the Captain and her assistant were legitimately cool people. They said we were like their friends. Listen, if you come to Oahu, there's a lot you can do. Hikes, Pearl Harbor, the beaches, shopping, food. It's all good. But I'm telling you right now that if you come here and you don't take the excursion of a lifetime with this amazing company, you'll miss out on an experience that my family and I will remember forever. Thank you so so so much!

This was such an amazing adventure! We saw so many dolphins and our incredible all-female crew did everything they could to ensure that we saw as many dolphins as possible, while still being very cautious and considerate towards the animals since there was a concerned momma dolphin with her baby. I highly recommend this excursion!

Mahalo MaresaW, we appreciate your time in writing this review. The animals well being is very much in our priority bank. The more we can observe with less impact is what we hope you could expect. We hope to see you again out here on the Waianae Coast. :) Lisa

Swimming with the dolphins was magical! I’ve done a lot of adventures living on the island, but this is definitely one to remember. The girls from the crew were very attentive, they made sure my friend and I had a great time. We made a few different spots- saw turtles, fish etc. I would definitely recommend Dolphin Excursions whether you live on the island or visiting!

We had an amazing morning with Dolphin Excursions! New COVID measures were handled professionally and there was a clear respect and love for ocean life and a desire to educate all on board. Everyone was kind, helpful, and professional. Thank you for a beautiful day out in the water!
